My thoughts on the Lush Northern Lights soap

After trying out Lush face Masks, I wanted to try their highly raved about soaps too as I have completely shifted to handmade soaps over shower gels.
So I bought a few of them around last month.

First thing I loved about the soap Northern lights is the heavenly, intoxicating fragrance it has!! One sniff of the soap, takes me into trance instantly. When I got these soaps, I kept them on my bedside for 2-3 days because of their lovely fragrance :D

Northern lights has this really amazingly refreshing fragrance of lemons (it has lime oil in it if you see the ingredients list). Using this soap in shower is definitely a delightful treat to the senses. The fragrance lingers on for a while after the bathing.

The colour of the soap is very unique, and I love it :D It’s a bright fluorescent yellow/green :D My dad shouted on me for getting such a weird looking soap :P and he even asked if this would glow in the dark :D :D :D

It’s a handmade soap, which is soft and free from fillers and heavy chemicals.
It lathers up just enough to give you a nice, clean feeling (but does not lather up a “LOT” like other normal soaps.) I am pretty okay with this fact, as more lather strips off the skin with its natural moisture. I like that this soap is pretty gentle on the skin.

It hydrates the skin lightly and makes it fairly soft (but not superbly soft) I guess since it’s not more of a moisturising soap bar, but rather a refreshing, invigorating one. Atleast it does not dry out my skin bad like other soaps. I find it apt for summers when my body skin is not that dry. My 3 year old nephew has extremely dry skin and we cannot use soaps on his body, but this lush soap works well for him too.
The soap is a soft one and dissolves pretty fast. One bar lasted me not more than 15 days. I prefer to cut my soap bar into smaller chunks to avoid any wastage.

Overall, I am quite happy and satisfied with this soap and I think I would purchase another 2-3 bars of this.
